3D models for 3D viewer in KiCad's Pcbnew and Footprint Editor


Pcbnew is a powerful printed circuit board software and part of the KiCad suite. Like Pcbnew the Footprint Editor is also part of KiCad. The 3D models are provided as *.step and *.wrl files and intended to be rendered by the Pcbnew and Footprint 3D viewer or other MCAD software.

The STEP files (*.step) are used for integration with MCAD software packages (e.g. by openscad or freecad). The WRL files (*.wrl) are used for photo-realistic rendering using KiCad's raytracing rendering engine.

The 3D models of this package are completely optional and not really needed for developing of any PCB layout but they give the user a impressive possibility to see how the PCB or the Footprint would look like.

This package is providing 3D Models for Pcbnew and the footprint editor usable for KiCad >= 8.0.0.

Please note this package will use about 5.7GB of disk space! Ensure you have enough free space on your PC or Laptop before you install the package.
